Default 2008 Prius "Red Triangle"

My friend has a 2008 Toyota Prius. The red triangle came on. I got it to go away by disconnecting the battery and touching the + & - together without the battery connected. Then started it up ran 2 to 3 miles red triangle came back on along with the VSC being lit up. It did not seem to mess it up as to the running of the car till it was turned off. Hit the power button, dash lights come on with the red triangle and will go into neutral but will not go anywhere else and the engine will not come on also, the little light on the power button stays on. Checked for any codes, but none. I have the torque app and checked the HB battery cells, all seemed balanced. Put on the Air still balanced. Swapped out the 12 v battery with mine made no difference. I'm stumped. If anyone can help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Sounds to me like you need a Toyota shop.

I find it hard to believe that the are NO codes stored.......since that is what triggers those trouble lights that you are seeing.
